When signal is lost, the system will trigger failsafe, you can choose either hovering or Auto Go Home/Landing. In addition, the A2 now has a new function of RTH switch from transmitter. There is no need to turn into failsafe.
MULTI-ROTOR ONE-MOTOR FAIL PROTECTION
This function means that when the aircraft is in attitude or GPS attitude mode, and one of the motors stops, the aircraft will retain good attitude and rotate around the frame arm with the stopped motor. In this condition, the aircraft is still under control and return home safely and highly reduces the risk of a crash.
INTELLIGENT ORIENTATION CONTROL (IOC)
Usually, the forward direction of a flying multi-rotor is the same as the nose direction. By using Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC), wherever the nose points, the forward direction has nothing to do with nose direction:
In course lock flying, the forward direction is the same as a recorded nose direction. See the following figures (Mode 2):
In home lock flying, the forward direction is the same as the direction from home point to the multi-rotor. See the following figures (Mode 2):
POINT OF INTEREST (POI)
